After noting some downtime issues recently with Magentocommerce.com - it has come to our attention that it has had a possible impact on stores.
When Magentocommerce went down this afternoon - the admin area on all of our hosted stores became non-responsive. As a test, we thought perhaps the version checking facility in the admin (to check for new messages/updates) might be hanging and causing an issue.
So, I added,
127.0.0.1 magentocommerce.com www.magentocommerce.com
To the /etc/hosts file, then after trying to access the admin was immediate without any hang/stall. This immediately resolved the issue, but is not an ideal solution, we shall be adding this issue to the bug tracker.
We were wondering if anyone else had noted a similar issue.
